Hi, Suddenly few days ago, my computer got intfected with some spyware called SpywareGuard2009. I had McAfee installed, but it could not stop this spyware. When I googled for it, i could not get much help. So I formatted the disk and reinstalled Windows XP. Now what antivirus/antispyware is best for me to protect my computer in future from spywares and viruses? Norton/AVG/any other antispywares? please suggest

Symantec Norton 360 - I've been a Norton user in various forms for close to a decade; the latest version doesn't do much different than the last few years' worth, but it's still rock-solid security that I don't hesitate to rely on. My only complaint is that Norton can slow down your computer quite a bit (like Kaspersky) and almost invariably hangs when I'm trying to shut down my computer. If you've ever wondered where all those error messages about programs like "ccApp" not responding come from, well, you've found it. It's frustrating that these problems persist year after year. $80 for Norton 360, or AntiVirus only for $60.

It is very bad to infected with any spyware or virus it take to much time to fix it out. I use CA antivirus it is work good for me from the day I install it I don't get any problem so CA is best for me. If you wanna install CA antivirus please note do not install CAPF(CA Personal Firewall). Enjoy spyfree world.

Certainly, Kaspersky Antivirus 2009 it's the best of all! Try it!
